The best chocolate ever

This chocolate really deserve to be mentioned because is great. It comes from Oaxaca, a beautiful town of Mexico. There, they use to make hot chocolate with it (with water or with milk), but I tried it just like that and I can tell that is so good! Consistency is “sandy” and when it breaks in your mouth all flavors come out and make you dream about this unique and enchanting country!

Italy sweet Italy!

Are you looking for a Moroccan restaurant?


If you like cuisine from Morocco 404 restaurant is really good and original, you have a large choice of meals and quality is as I like. Besides that decoration of restaurant and tableware is so refined!

Sorbetto al limone (the original)

In Italy we use to eat sorbetto al limone at the end of lunch or dinner.. we love it because is fresh, has a lemon zing and if is homemade is light (just fresh lemons and sugar inside!)

frozen, before pacossage. can you see lemons inside?

brownie or cheesecake?

Brownie and cheesecake on the same cake?  is a perfect combination! You can spread on it a little bit of apricot sauce or cover it with chocolate glaze.. there are so many options, final taste it’s up to you!

Sunday evening in Nice!

I’ve always blamed all Italians who go to Paris and look for pasta… well Sunday evening I was in Nice, in French Riviera, with my friend Teresa and we were looking for a restaurant, when I saw this wonderful pasta with lobster in this Italian restaurant I said « I want to stop here ! » it was just great..
Pasta – Francesca 1 - 0
oh my lobster!

blueberry cake

It looks innocent but its not.. between fruit cakes is maybe the richest one! sour cream and butter give the moist, blueberry give that scent that you will hardly resist!

"Artistic" fruity tarte

This cake would have pleased to Kandinski and his Squares with Concentric Circles! We have 4 colors of pastry cream: light blue (Curacao blu), pink (raspberry), yellow (lemon), orange (mango). The best view is from the sky so you can really see all circles made by different kind of fruits! What else? Is healthy and tasty, a perfect deal for coming summer!
